More on the Tumwater incident:
“As a volunteer firefighter I have received active shooter training,” George explained. “I was sure what I heard was gunshots.”
Police say 44-year old Tim Day went on a shooting and carjacking spree.
He tried to carjack a couple in the Walmart parking lot, critically shooting the driver.
George says he then saw Day try to carjack another person and that’s when he shot and killed him.
“I carry a firearm for the same reason I carry a first aid bag,” he said. “Hoping not to use them but being prepared nonetheless.”
George is a local pastor, and volunteer firefighter and EMT who rushed to help the injured driver, Ricky Fievez.
Fievez’s son says the Good Samaritan’s quick-actions saved his dad’s life.
“That bystander who shot him is a hero,” said Tyler Fievez. “That guy could have killed both my parents plus plenty more people.”
Police say Day tried to carjack at least six people before his rampage came to an end.
